Even in Week 2 of the National Football League, the Giants had to have this game. They couldn't afford to lose their first two games before facing the defending division champs Philadelphia Eagles. An 0-2 start would have killed any realistic shot of making the playoffs. Knowing that, the Giants overcame a poor defensive start to beat the Saint Louis Rams, 28-16.
The victory evened the record at 1-1. The win wasn't pretty, but I'm sure everyone will take it. It took a while, but the Giants offense finally got on track for a little while. Still a work in progress, the offense put up 21 points against a good Rams' defense.
The Defense was bad early, but improved as the game went along. Unable to stop the Rams no huddle, the Giants regrouped in the red zone, only giving up one touchdown.
Here is what I liked and disliked against the Rams:
